A barber has been told by his local council to move a 7ft statue of Homer Simpson from outside his shop because it is 'too fat'.
Surrey County Council have told barbershop owner Russell Butler to get a 'slimmed down' version of the cartoon character because wheelchairs and buggies can't get past, sparking health and safety concerns.
Surrey County Council sent the letter on April 22 asking Mr Butler to move the statue as Homer was said to be an "obstruction" to the pavement.
Russell Butler claims he received the letter from the council after he spotted council staff taking photos. Mr Butler claimed that the statue has been present outside he shop in Ewell, Surrey for the last decade.
